a landscape at the edge of the world

Who we are:

As a unique hybrid of a foundation and a game studio, backed by Supercell entrepreneurs and built by game developers, engineers and social scientists, Wondershop is committed to giving back to non-profit communities that advance social equity and inclusion among kids and youth.

We believe that everyone deserves an equal start in life, and that technology and games, when guided by social sciences, can help level the playing field. At best games are much more than just entertainment: they are adventures, educational experiences and springboards for friendships that transcend physical and societal boundaries. The sense of meaning, belonging and achievement unique to games is something any child can benefit from.

We’re developing a new kind of community game that brings the magic found in the digital realm into the real world. Our long-term vision is to scale our impact globally – to communities built and managed by us as well as, for example, schools, sports teams or even entire cities. Our aim is to create lasting, positive impact among kids, youth and families. And we don’t want these to just be ceremonial words, which is why we always measure the impact created by our projects. Being able to understand the impact that our games have on kids is as crucial as creating a game that kids will love.
